Militarization of Scandinavian Peninsula: Time to Ring Alarm Bells:

Much has been said about NATO reinforcements in the Baltic States and Poland perceived in Moscow as provocative actions undermining security in Europe, while very little has been said about gradual but steady militarization of Scandinavia.

EU Orders Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway To Stop Border Controls: Or What?:

Bureaucrats should not go about making orders they cannot enforce. It
serves no purpose other than to make the bureaucrats look ridiculous.

Here is a case in point: Brussels Orders EU Countries to SCRAP Internal Checks Within Six Months.
